Hi Everyone,

I hope you are enjoying the first official week of summer so far! The weather has finally made the change here in Eastern Canada and I am trying to soak up as much sunshine and fresh air as possible, so for the foreseeable future you will likely find me outside if you鈥檙e joining me for a zoom meeting 馃槈

Today I wanted to share some exciting news! We are officially announcing the 2023 Virtual Fedora Showcase. As a way to bring the community back together in one (virtual) space we are hosting a 2-3 day online event to give our users a chance to share their work, discuss their implementations, collaborate, and reconnect with one another. This event will be free to all participants and we hope you鈥檒l use this opportunity to bring friends and colleagues along to learn more about us, the software and our community. Registration details will follow in the weeks to come so keep your eyes open for info on that.
